I wanted to answer a couple of questions from the yes/no meme. Several asked about me being outside naked. That’s fairly common around here in the summer. We are lucky enough to have a pool and neighbors who go to bed early. The pool is reasonably secluded so we just slip out the basement door and into the pool for a little skinny dip.
We were also out naked on our balcony at a wonderful hotel we went to this summer. There was nothing but beautiful scenery behind the hotel for 30 miles or so. I like being out naked it feels sexy and naughty and, as long as Nick’s the only one looking, I’m pretty comfortable.
There was another question about the fistfight. I guess it wasn’t really a fight, but it’s the only time I’ve ever hit someone with my fist. I was about 12 and a kid in the neighborhood held my new puppy out a second floor window as a joke. I knew I couldn’t grab at the kid or he would drop the puppy, so I just turned, not saying anything and came downstairs. The kid followed with the puppy. Once he put him on the ground I decked him good! He was younger than me, but bigger. He never bothered my dog or me again.
On to the weekend – I had a wild Saturday. Or maybe I should say a wildlife Saturday. On our road trip we saw lots of wildlife. We weren’t able to get pictures of the wild turkeys we saw, but here are some pictures Nick did manage to get –
The deer, we saw seven in all, we’re by the road and thankfully not dashing across it. The other pictures Nick took at a small wolf rescue sanctuary. The director was a wonderful lady in her sixty’s, a retired cop who was also raised as an army brat. She was fun to talk to. She said it was harder cleaning all the pens (they were quite large) because all the falling leaves made it hard to see the waste, or as she put it “I can’t see shit.”
It was also fun hearing her talk about dominance and submission among the wolves. She said it was okay to put two males in with one female as long as she was an alpha. But that it didn’t work so well with two females and one male – I’ll have to agree. She also mentioned she had some wolves living in her house and she added, “But in my house I’m the alpha bitch.” She was a cool lady and we enjoyed meeting her. It was a great day.
